what type of wood is used in the OLP MM3 (5 string)? I played a natural finish with what appeared to be a real flame maple top (not just photoflame, although I could be wrong). the 2 volume controls (very strange setup) each control 1 coil of the pickup, right? How hard would it be to cut the pickguard (love the 3 ply tort stock pickguard) to fit in a "sterling" 3 way lever switch to wire the pickup series/parallel/single coil (like a Sterling)? Would I have to route out the body? (not too much of a worry on a $279 bass). I know the quality of an OLP can be hit and miss, but this one seemed really nice. Worth buying and dropping in some mods (pickup, maybe even a preamp). All included, still cheaper than a SUB (and better looking in my opinion).
